I'm also okay with copying the dependencies, if Arun thinks that's the 
better approach. Speaking with the upstream hat on, that would leave us 
unaffected in case Ubuntu would change it build dependencies, which 
seems to be an advantage. (Even if the distro hat David ensures me this 
is extremely unlikely to ever happen in a stable release.)
